As one who wore the uniform for over two decades...I can say I respect their right to do this...but I would feel such participation of any family members of mine to be backstabbing.
Some military families who oppose the U-S operation in Iraq are planning a protest today in the nation's capital.
This comes as Washington officials prepare for various events to mark the first anniversary of the war at the end of the week.
The protesters first gather at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, the first stop for most of the casualties from Iraq. Then, they'll march to the White House.
The event is organized by a group called "Military Families Speak Out," which represents about a thousand military families who want U-S troops to withdraw from Iraq.
